Ever had a craving for something, but not want to spend the entire afternoon in the kitchen? I love making foods from scratch, but seeing how far vegan food items have become readily available in the past few years makes me appreciate being able to buy them. And that’s exactly where my love for Trader Joes comes in (no, this isn’t sponsored, I just have a genuine love for the place 🙃) and every single ingredient in this recipe was purchased from there. And thus, I give you “Five Minute Banana Bread French Toast.” Seriously, impress your friends for brunch, vegan or not, on a whim.
